If The Earthquake Doesn’t Kill us
Changing the system doesn’t have to be
Such a big deal when you live on a fault.
An earthquake can happen any minute
And if you survive with no property
The common wealth supports all equally
But even if skyscrapers crash, the banks
And their golf course hospitals, can drive tanks
Even before they repave the alleys
Or let you plant seeds on their property
So, no point hoping for that kind of quake.
It will be used to make some more wealthy
Unless enough of us unite to take
Back the schools & fountains they privatized
Once blacks got the rights that would equalize.
